People had a range of assessments and care plans which detailed the care and support they needed. People were supported with their choice of lifestyle and interests. One person said �They helped me recover when I was poorly and now I pretty much look after myself�. Another person said �The staff help people that need the help, you see staff sit and help some people with meals or spend time doing their nails.�

People�s health and care needs were monitored and reviewed regularly by staff. People had access to a range of health and social care professionals that ensured their health needs were met.
